As has been said before, the staff are fantastic. There was one little bugbear that the room wasn't ready for check-in, even though we arrived after the specified check-in time. It was only 5 minutes later than check in time, but still. Either way, not a huge deal, just a minor inconvenience. When we did check in, the room was spacious, clean, well-equipped (mini bar, hair dryer, iron, TV, free water, tea coffee and biscuits, etc), big bathroom with bath and shower. Shower had plenty of power - not like in some places where it just dribbles! No air con - not usually a problem in Ireland, but it was hot and stuffy. They provided two fans, but I still had to sleep with the window open and it was still hot! Some may find it unbearable, but I could deal with it OK. Free WiFi - something that it pretty much non-negotiable for me, and it worked as well as any hotel wifi I've used. The location is excellent. Just around the corner from the Temple Bar area, and therefore central Dublin (Grafton St for shopping etc) is only a 5-15 minute walk away (depending on where you're going).
The only thing I would say is that it was quite pricey and while I'd DEFINITELY look to stay here again, probably not at the price I paid this time (limited choices due to busy weekend in Dublin).
